I'm Guided by the Beauty of Our Weapons

NBC news anchor, Brian Williams, has caused controversy by quoting LC's lyrics from First We Take Manhattan during coverage of the missile strike into Syria last night. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/04/07/beautiful-brian-williams-says-of-syria-missile-strike-proceeds-to-quo...

Re: Website about charges pending against Kelley Lynch

Disregard my prior comment. I read the linked site again, and there are current charges pending against her.

Re: Website about charges pending against Kelley Lynch

In reading the linked site, I don't read the information as asserting that any current charges are pending.
The charges were handled as part of the criminal harassment lawsuit for which Lynch was jailed several years ago.

Re: Question about Leonard and Anjani before his death

The article by Rabbi Findlay about his relationship with Leonard refers to Leonard and Adjani having split up at some point.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

It's so sad - but the worldwide reaction has been remarkable. So many people in comments sections on endless sites remark how there is not a single negative or snarky comment. So many people talking about the effect Leonard has had on their lives and how they are typing through tears.

Re: New poem "Steer Your Way"

Lyrics to a new song is my guess? I recall that the magazine published the lyrics to one of the songs on Popular Problems before the album was released - I forget which song.

LC on The Americans

There was a great and quite lengthy use of Who By Fire in the season finale of The Americans this week - the best show on TV, by the way.

Rosewater

Evidently in the upcoming movie, Rosewater, directed by John Stewart, the lead character, a journalist imprisoned in Iran, sings Leonard Cohen songs to himself while in jail. The trailer shows him dancing to a song in his cell, but the soundtrack does not reveal the song.

Re: Leonard Gets No More "Bad Reviews"

Panjandrum - I think that is an accurate analysis - I would just add some additional recognition as
'the guy who wrote Hallelujah'. When you see a reference to the song now, more often than not it is referred to as Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Leonard Gets No More "Bad Reviews"

As a fan since the start - 1967 - I think Leonard has never received more publicity than has been the case over the past couple of weeks, what with the new album, the wonderful birthday and, also, the witty smoking pledge that drew a lot of attention. This was certainly the case here in the USA, and...

Re: Popular Problems - Various Chart Positions

Great news - why do people in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria have such superior taste to those here in the USA?

Nevermind - what is #27? I see he also makes #50.

Re: Popular Problems - Various Chart Positions

Not the official Billboard 200 chart, but this one shows Popular Problems at #12 in the US - disappointing?
